Working images. Meditate Toward an Applied Visual Anthropology. The case of the Project International Juvenile Neighborhoods of the World, and their talkative focus.

Abstract in spanish


Based on an experience of visual anthropology, more specifically located on an education, research and social management project with young kids from marginal neighbourhoods, this document resumes some thoughts, contributions and questions that have risen along the project, all of which points to an ethical and political approach of the social scientist’s own nature, in particular for the visual anthropologist.

Keywords: visual anthropology,applied anthropology,popular juvenile identities,methodologies formation participative and action,popular education.
